Andy King, the professional event planner who went viral for his commitment to helping pull together the disastrously infamous Fyre Festival, could be getting a TV show.
King, who is openly gay, appeared in Netflix’s documentary “Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.” In one of the documentary’s most memorable scenes, King describes how he was prepared to “take one for the team” and “suck dick” to ensure Evian water was delivered to the festival.
The scene went viral and spawned numerous memes. In an interview with Netflix, King says he never expected for his story to become so popular.
“I’m blown away with the response of the documentary. Completely blown away. I’m now a noun, a verb, an adjective. It’s mind-boggling,” King said. “I just don’t want to be necessarily known as the blowjob king of the world.”

Speaking with Vanity Fair, King revealed that he has received offers for his own TV show from different networks.
“I had three TV show offers this week, from notable networks,” King said although he wouldn’t spill which networks had reached out.
King already has a potential concept for his show in mind.
“You see the attractiveness of HGTV today. People love ‘Flip or Flop’ or ‘Fixer Upper.’ Let’s just say it’s going to be a show about hosting crazy events — what it takes to make them happen,” King said.“There will be cliff-hangers, and you’ll get to follow me around and see how I pull them off.”
However, King isn’t interested in expanding into ventures beyond television.
“You’re not going to see me launching a handbag line or makeup,” King added. “I think I’m being given a platform that a lot of people, at age 58 especially, don’t get the opportunity to have. And I’m kind of excited about it.”
